Notes: Since 2011, Old Westminster winery has been proving that great natural wine can come from some of the most unexpected places. Located in Westminster, Maryland and run by siblings Drew, Lisa, and Ashli, Old Westminster is putting Maryland on the world wine map. Grown in channery loam soils overlaying a bedrock of greenstone schist, Old Westminster vines produce fruit with intense aromatics and distinct minerality. And these characteristics shine through all Old Wesminter’s wines due to pragmatic farming practices led by Drew. Various cover crops are used to boost biodiversity and no herbicides are implemented whatsoever, keeping the soil as alive as possible. In the cellar, Lisa is the chief winemaker. As a former chemist, she’s captivated by Maryland’s many unique geologies and climates and is dedicated to crafting the best wines the region has to offer. 

This 'Origins' is a blend of 60% Chambourcin, 23% Cabernet Franc and 17% Cabernet Sauvignon. Fermented in stainless steel with native yeast, aged in french oak barrels for 36 months.
